Jaguar MK1 1959 - Full front leather car seat restoration

These Jaguar MK1's are rare cars and to be asked to restore an original interior was a privilege and joy.

Given the age of the leather a very careful restoration was required. The drivers seat had two very large crease splits that would require the most attention.

Firstly I stripped off all the old colourant, dirt and grease. After close inspection all damage was repaired. The leather was still supple and did not require softening treatments however many parts required many strengthening treatments.

Once the large amount of preparation was completed. I was able to recolour the seats with the exact Jaguar red from that period

The end result in my opinion was visually stunning with the seats now being protected for many years to come.


With the front seats of my 1959 Jaguar MK1 needing renovating and after much research on the internet of local (West Berkshire) leather repair businesses I decided to contacted Colin of

Following a telephone call Colin came to my home to inspect the seats, and during this visit Colin expertly took me through the full procedure which would be required to renovate my seats; it quickly became apparent to me that here was a man who was passionate about his work.

A very reasonable quote was provided and within a week of starting the work Colin delivered the renovated the seats back to my home. The transformation was incredible; tears and unsightly creases had disappeared while the leather had been recoloured in way that was fully in keeping with the age of my Jaguar.

The standard of the work certainly exceeded my expectations and furthermore, Colin kept the final cost down to his original quotation despite carrying out extra repair work which had only revealed itself after the seats were removed from the car. For a highly professional, friendly and efficient service I cannot recommend Colin enough. S. Dismorr.
